Descendants of Martha MCNITT WHITMORE

Since the Whitmores were from Cayuga County, New York, Martha probably was also.  James Whitmore's father Benjamin is listed on the same page of the 1810 census of Brutus, Cayuga County, as Alexander McNitt, who did have females in his household of the correct age range to be Martha.  Martha was the earliest of the Cayiuga County McNitts to settle in Ohio near David McNutt's family.  James appears in the 1820 census of Ridgefield, Huron County and the 1830 and 1840 censuses of Thompson Township, Seneca County before moving on to Illinois.  It is likely that James was the brother of Esther Whitmore who married Elijah McNitt, as that would help to explain what led all of Elijah's children to move from New York to Thompson Township.
